Picasa Book updated to Version 3.5


Well, it took us a little longer than we planned, but it’s ready now! Not only did we update it to teach the version 3.5, but we also expanded it from 40 pages to 60, and added several videos. We are now selling the book with a companion DVD. All the videos referenced in the book are on the DVD in a simple easy to use player. You can just let the DVD play and watch over 2 hours of ‘Show-Me-How’ videos.

Watch the video at the right to see and hear about it.

Chris is a teacher. Although she comes as close to an expert as possible in many areas of computer usage, she can still remember what it's like not to know these things! That means she can communicate with students in a way that teaches and doesn't demean. She really enjoys teaching one-on-one and for groups of people, but she reaches a worldwide audience with her tutorial videos on the GeeksOnTour.com website. She currently travels the country in an RV with her husband, Jim. As Geeks on Tour, they present computer seminars at RV rallies, computer clubs, and Senior Centers all over the US.

  1. I had planned to buy the new book and DVD but in the table of contents I can find absolutely nothing pertaining to SCANNING PHOTOS or any change in the procedeure for scanning. Scanning does not work like it has for many pictures. Please tell me what and how the changes are. !!!!!


    1. Ed,
      Check your version … go to Help | About Picasa. You should see a build number.
      In build number 79.69 the fixed an issue where certain scanners weren’t recognized when importing. If your version is earlier than that, then an upgrade may fix your issue. fyi – scanning into Picasa still works the same for me – so 3.5 didn’t break the feature, although it does have a problem with some scanners.


  2. THE PICASA TIP :SCANNING OLD PHOTOS by Chris Guld on January 6, 2009. Is an exellent article and I have used the procedure many times. Now this procedure no longer works. Tell mer where I can find the newer procedure please. !!
